Here are another couple of pages from the Art Journal. This one was about books - you'd never have guessed eh? I can't remember how I did the background but there is a circle of handwriting which I overlaid with a printed acetate. I had made a pattern of text going round in a circle and then printed onto the acetate using the computer. It's not my favourite colourwise, but I was pleased to get the acetate printing right!
This one was probably my favourite - I just liked the colours probably! This one was probably gessoed first then had the image added, then smeared in some areas with vaseline, then painted over with acrylic (or acrylic mixed with gesso) and when dryish rubbed with a kitchen towel so that where the vaseline was, bits rub off and give a nice patchy effect. As you can see there was a bit of stamping with foam/rubber alphabet stamps - not sure at what stage this happened though. I can't recall the theme for this one but it may have been a word association type thing.
